.............. Am I right?
Friday, May 15, 2009
1. Well, we're growing up! We bought our first car! We needed a second one and after searching around for a week, we decided on our nice Honda. It's an older year, but you wouldn't guess it because the leather interior is up to par, plus it's got the sunroof that gives it a nice SoCal touch. So we are proud owners of our first pink slip! We also got health insurance this week! Yay for payments, decision-making and adulthood!
2. We've discovered for ourselves that Sprinkles cupcakes really are the bomb-diggity. We've tried other cupcake boutiques along Wilshire and nothing compares. JO was super nice 2 weeks ago. He picked me up from work and I had this sitting in my seat:
3. We've ventured down to the founding site of Los Angeles - Olvera St. It was a cute strip with mexican shops and the oldest Adobe house in Los Angeles. Jared had to do an interview for his spanish class with a woman who owned a tamale shop. I LOVE it when he speaks Spanish. Jared also had me try a mexican candy which I was anticipating to be...weird but it wasn't. It's called Mazapan, which always reminds me of Marzipan, a delightful treat my friend Kristen would buy from Harrod's chocolaterie which makes me think about this:
Countless nights of WONDERMENT over Harrod's Gelato Menu...And this......
London is heaven.
We will reside there after Jared finishes dental school.
4. I've had the decorating itch lately, but neither the money nor house to decorate. I was really close to buying an armoire, but Jared luckily stopped me. We'll save the money for the time when we really need it and have the proper space. But in the mean time our apt consists of homemade pillows, picture frames from Michaels, some candles, and an awesome wooden chest. If only I could paint the walls, this room would have more personality.
5. Red Box
We owe many of our dates nights to this ingenious idea. I think the movie we've enjoyed the most is "BOLT." Very quotable and humorous. "Bed Time Stories" was ok.
